    Enjoying the Ride
Two annual special events also take place along the Paiute ATV Trail System. The first one is the Fillmore ATV Jamboree, held in late June, highlighting the emerging greenery and melting snowbanks of the high country. The Rocky Mountain ATV Jamboree, held in Richfield, takes place in September when fall colors are at their peak. Both of these events have become popular and attract ATV riders from all over the United States and beyond.

Since state or federal funding for construction, maintenance and administration of the trails system is limited, volunteers play an important part in the Paiute ATV Trail System. They provide on-going maintenance, including litter removal and routine sign maintenance. Several times a year volunteers will take on major projects including construction of needed barriers, cattle guards, or repair of major erosion problems. Volunteers also assist the many riders visiting the trail with information and answers to questions.

There are still problems along the Paiute and Great Western Trail systems. Littering, vandalism and riding off established trails occur, but the degree and magnitude have been reduced to a level of manageability. The Paiute Trail has been and continues to be a successful management tool. The key to that success has been model of partnership and cooperation among the various state and federal agencies, businesses, communities and the people who come to responsibly ride and enjoy their public lands.

Join Team South on September 19 as they attend the Rocky Mountain Jamboree!
